I start my cars turn every thing on fan lights etc. As it's running I disconnect the battery. If the car dies your alternator is in need of repair. 9 times out of 10 it's the module which contains the brushes and the regulator ~$70.00. 2 nuts to replace it.

The alternator should supply the necessary current to run the car without assistance from the battery. After the car starts the battery's function is a big capacitor.
